They're baaaaaaack. Oh boy, do we have a roster of Mac Minis for you this week. And since they're so brand spanking new, we thought we'd only let the youngest of the Apple line onto the list, so it's all 2014 models up and newer, starting off with everyone's favorite little guy.
Well, May the Fourth be with you. We've got some sales of games galore this weekend and one of the big names topping that list is Star Wars. With their "Jedi holiday" fast approaching, this franchise is sensing a disturbance in the price column, as if loads of apps cried out and got suddenly cheaper. If that makes sense to you, head on down to the App Store. We've highlighted some of them, but by no means all, and we've got a bevy of non-Lucas-related titles on the price chopping block for the weekend as well.
We've got some workout action for you on the cheap this weekend, plus a couple really pretty productivity apps. Games? Oh, yes. And if you want to send a delightful postcard home to the family to show them what a rocking vacation you've had, then we've got something in that vein too. That and even more all packed inside with weekend's Price Drop, so come on in.
Since the new MacBook recently dropped, we figure that most Apple buyers are thinking about things that are shiny and fancy and new. Don't get us wrong; we're still touting the best of the best in the refurb market here, because that's where the deals really get awesome. But this time we're only offering up models from 2014. Anything older than that, while still likely a pretty amazing machine, and the tag of "new" (or even "newish") doesn't quite stick. These are some of the freshest re-boxed Macs on the market, and any one of these will save you loads of cash if you're looking for great deals.
Now that you've knuckled down and got your taxes in order, let productivity take a backseat to some freshly discounted apps and games. You deserve some fun, right? Games for you and games for your kids, as well as some fitness apps to help burn off any stress-eating pounds you might have experienced this week as you itemized deductions. You'll definitely save on taxes, too — sales taxes that is — with this collection of cut prices.
They're back! That's right, the beloved Mac minis, but if you've read this column before, then you know you've gotta hustle if you want to get your hands on these. So get moving and get buying because who knows when we'll see these little guys back.
Okay, shutterbugs, this week's Price Drop is all about you. Since the App Store is having a big push on Photo + Video apps, we've got cameras for days. We've got photo editors, we've got filter apps, we've got apps to turn pictures into sketches or paintings. But we've got a game here and there and a couple other fun things for the rest of you out there who are satisfied with the stock camera and have no need of punching up your selfies. So let's dive into the deals.
They came, they sold, they're gone. Last week's reappearance of the Mac mini was typical. It shows up, it gets bought out. People just love that little box of magic. Sorry we don't have any to show you this week, but don't go away! There's still a ton of great deals waiting just for you, so let's have a look, shall we?
We've got some super-huge-name game titles from a major studio in store for you, plus a whole collection of games for the younger set that got their prices shrunk down to kid size. Also, one of the very best calendar replacement apps sees itself go down a few bucks in price, while a creepy game and an App Store editor's choice get the slashed treatment to boot. Dig in, folks.
There are a few Mac minis in various configurations at the Apple refurb shop, but we chose just one this week: the best deal and the kickingest configuration. We've also got Airs and an iMac worth your cash, plus a few items for those of you sporting iOS devices. Let's go check it out.
